A Western Detective/Lawman Novel

A killer leads three lawmen a merry chase into dangerous renegade Kiowa territory. Read how will they get out of this one.

Hawk, his 6'2" partner Merle, and a long-past-retirement sharp old deputy Pike Winslow bust a cattle rustling ring while in pursuit of a killer, who eludes them and sells black market army rifles to renegade Kiowas in exchange for stolen gold bullion. They have to come up with a way get out from the midst of all those armed Indians, recover the gold, arrest Pearson, and get the gold to Denver. But the trail doesn't end there. The army garrison colonel who takes charge of the recovered gold disappears with the bullion. The chase isn't over yet.

Tyrone Narrowhawk - a Harvard educated Indian known as Hawk, raised by a powerful federal judge, given a U.S. Marshal’s star and sent covertly into the western territories using his wits and a gun.

Merle Johnson - a former Calvary Lieutenant sharp shooter turned cowboy, a good make to have at your back.

Pike Winslow - ;an old cowboy lawman well past retirement age that hasn’t slowed down a bit. In his day he taught Hawk a few things.

Many others make up this adventures tale of daring-do in the old west.

Reviews:

***** I don't know which I liked better, Educated Injun or Chicago Chase. I'm glad I read them both. ·· W.R. Masters

**** I loved the detail and the interplay between the characters. The author also did a fine job of describing the chase through the town and the handcar process. The imagery was specific enough for me to picture everything in my mind, but not so much so that it bogged down the action.  Overall, I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to folks who love a good western, a good chase or mischievous characters with a lot of personality (gotta' love how Hawk always manages to snag one or more of the Judge's cigars). ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

***** Old West that does NOT get boring! Wild west? More like FUN west! lol This was my first western type of book. I found this really fun to read because it was not a simple basic story. It wasn't written using basic outlines. None of that dictated dialogue and prefab character development, just a really cool web of a story to wrap my head around. I LOVE a story that makes me think. ·· Jennifer Elizabeth Hyndman @ Amazon

Reviews:

**** Very Entertaining... I find this book to be very entertaining and full of action. It is also different! I enjoyed the Western style composure of this book and there is no dull moment. It keeps you in suspense! I plan to recommend it to my friends because I enjoyed it. ·· Tamarah

***** A good read with characters you like. I'd recommend it. ·· W.R. Masters

****  I most enjoyed the fast paced, action driven storyline and the tongue-in-cheek banter between Merle and Hawk (and between Hawk and the judge that put him through college). Besides that, I got a kick out of Merle's nemesis, a certain shoulder cannon with, well, a kick.  In summary, Educated Injun is action-packed, funny, clever, and entertaining. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Last of the Plainsmen (Western Classic)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "Buffalo Jones needs no introduction to American sportsmen, but to these of my readers who are unacquainted with him a few words may not be amiss. He was born sixty-two years ago on the Illinois prairie, and he has devoted practically all of his life to the pursuit of wild animals. It has been a pursuit which owed its unflagging energy and indomitable purpose to a singular passion, almost an obsession, to capture alive, not to kill. He has caught and broken the will of every well-known wild beast native to western North America. Killing was repulsive to him. He even disliked the sight of a sporting rifle, though for years necessity compelled him to earn his livelihood by supplying the meat of buffalo to the caravans crossing the plains. At last, seeing that the extinction of the noble beasts was inevitable, he smashed his rifle over a wagon wheel and vowed to save the species. For ten years he labored, pursuing, capturing and taming buffalo, for which the West gave him fame, and the name Preserver of the American Bison.” - Zane Grey, "The Last of the Plainsmen” Zane Grey (1872-1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that were a basis for the Western genre in literature and the arts. With his veracity and emotional intensity, he connected with millions of readers worldwide, during peacetime and war, and inspired many Western writers who followed him. Grey was a major force in shaping the myths of the Old West; his books and stories were adapted into other media, such as film and TV productions. He was the author of more than 90 books, some published posthumously and/or based on serials originally published in magazines.

A 6'5" starship captain flees a lost war and lands on Earth in 1600s feudal Japan. Imagine the possibilities!

· In Earth's far distant past an epic battle took place in space thousands of light years away. Facing only annihilation Captain Kendrick turned his interstellar fighter craft to the farthest reaches of the galaxy until he reached a blue marble of a planet and landed on a large island in its northern hemisphere. Earth. 1600s feudal Japan. A 6'5" warrior from an advanced culture in a land populated by 5'8" war-like people.

· Imagine the possibilities!

· He befriends the local Shukido, a Bushido Warrior-Protector, brings innovation to the local  ship builder Honashi, master of the village, falls for his beautiful independent daughter Doiyoko, saves and is adopted by a tiger. He helps them to thwart an attack by a neighboring warlord. They in turn help him to defend against his enemies when a patrolling spacecraft discovers his presence, sometimes by using kinetic energy weapons (rocks).

· When challenged by Honashi to a race using his sleek new sailing sloop vs Honashi's own through the dangerous Doro-bai, the treacherous shoreline passage wrecks the ship. He and Doiyoko are forced to overcome their injuries, climb a steep cliff, and strike out overland where they encounter and battle bandits. In the process they save an endearing young woman who charms the elder Honashi when he finally finds and rescues them. But she's not what she seems.

 

Kendrick - a starship captain and well-trained warrior loyal to his people and his cause, but the war is lost. He is forced to flee across the galaxy.

Gogenko - a pedantic shukido (area protector) trained in the tradition of Bushido, the Way of the Warrrior.

Kenshi - Gogenko’s cousin, fellow martial arts student, and shukido to Honashi Village.

Doiyoko - the beautiful if untraditional oldest daughter of the Honashi Village leader.

 

Reviews:

***** Great fun! This book is just a lot of fun! With flavors of Samurai and Steam-punk adding spice, it rocks along from delight to surprise, and all along it is highly satisfying. Oh, on first reading, towards the end I thought maybe it bogged down. But it is the sort of book you want to re-read as soon as you finish it, because it was just so much fun. And I found out I was wrong: the story continues apace, right to the last page. And the ending is a pure delight. Don't peek, you won't get it. But I can assure you: it will give you huge satisfaction, and you will be glad you chose to read this book. ·· William Fletcher

**** ...Overall, this is an entertaining book on many levels. Those who enjoy reading about real-life and science fiction technology will enjoy the technical parts. Those who like laser fights and battles between uneven forces where the underdog must overcome long odds will enjoy the battles. Those who like strong women who overcome social barriers and can hold their own will enjoy Doiyoko, Kendrick's love interest. Those who enjoy a little mystical and technological awesomeness in their main character will love Kendrick. And, finally, those who enjoy humorous situations and camaraderie will find more than a sufficient dose in this book to satisfy their funny bones. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

***** Exciting - this is the most appropriate word to describe Exile. Author R.L. Kiser put a bit of everything in the story. Apart from the prime sci-fi adventure theme, there is romance between Kendrick and Doiyoko, the beautiful but unconventional eldest daughter of the Honashi Village leader. There is also a fairly healthy dose of humor packed into this story. I do appreciate the way it is written in two parts: Kendrick's first arrival and his developing relationship with his new friends in part one; how he copes with his new life years later in part two. I think this approach maintains the good pacing of the story. Simply put, Exile is a stellar work from Kiser, with appealing characters and an absorbing tale. ·· Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

Reviews:

***** Whoa, slow down there, Turbo! A sexy babe with muscles, training, and ability. A guy with a laser sword, a giant, ancient warriors. This has it all. You did it again, dude. What a great story. ·· J.D. King

***** Strong start. OMG, love the cover! The description in the book of the girl and her outfit (and why it's so scanty) is believable and impressive. If I hadn't seen the cover pic, I think I would have pictured the same girl. ·· Anymous (Goodreads)

***** ...Overall, I really liked this book, though I can only make it through one or two battle scenes in a single sitting (probably why it took me a while to read the story). The characters are charismatic and their banter is humorous. I enjoyed the magical elements and the hints at a greater history. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

The fight scenes are well-described with great details – this is definitely R.L. Kiser’s strength. No reader would complain that he or she couldn't imagine the scenes vividly. Nonetheless, there are times when things are a little too convenient in the plot department. Character development is solid, although not the strongest compared to some of Kiser’s books that I've read before. Yet it’s all justifiable as it’s such a wild adventure. Overall, it is a book that would satisfy fantasy and adventure fans alike – it’s action-packed and a fast read. That said, The Prophecy of Tara is strictly for mature adults due to some parts of the story that are not suited for younger readers. ··Lit Amri for Readers’ Favorite
